The carbs need to be cleaned.There is a high speed jet in the carb that is more than likely stopped up. Jim OMC retired mech.

no. a unmodified transom bracket may need to be moved not removed. Since the tilt motor is out you will need to manually lift the engine. you can see the picture diagram at www.yamaha-motor.com. click on outboard motors,parts and service, view parts catalog. find your year make and model by following steps listed at top. select power trim and tilt assembly. in the picture you will see the location of the Manuel release valve on the starboard side. turn the Manuel release valve then lift the engine. tie it up or use a stand to keep it up,do not use the tilt lock. with the engine in full tilt position, you can see the motor. some brackets are modified were you can remove the motor without moving the transom bracket. If unmodified you'll need to follow these steps. (1) lower the engine back down.the steering arm needs to be removed from the steering cable and swung forward. do not remove steering arm from engine. on the starboard side of the engine you will see the steering cable going into the steering cable tube. (2)a 1 1/6 nut secures the cable to that tube remove it and slide cable out do not remove it.(3) lift engine again and secure it. your about to remove the motor mount bolt so make sure you secure the motor completely (4)remove upper and lower transom to bracket bolts remove bolts on the port side only.(5) you will see three bolt that go through the transom bracket to the trim and tilt assembly. remove them.(6) if all bolts are removed you will be able to slide the port transom bracket to the left out of the way(7) remove tilt/trim motor.

Put the motor in neutral.On the leg of the motor there is a little side cover plate.Remove.Undo the bolts.This is the gear change linkage.At the cavitation plate,there is 4 bolts.Remove.If the lower housing does not drop,give it a soft whack with a soft hammer.When dropped,you will see the prop shaft and the gear linkage.Lower it all the way out.Its easy to work on if you put the lower skeg in a vice.Take the water pump apart BUT!!! have a look at which way the impellar blades are pointed.Grease the new impellar as you put it back in and turn it at the same time to get the nodes in properly.Heaps of grease to protect all the bolts.Makes it easier next time.Hope this helps
